Memories of St. Nicholas

Hello blogland and Happy St. Nicholas Day! When my daughters were growing up, it was a special day for them. They belonged to a Ukrainian childrens group and every year they put on a little program which ended with all the children singing a special song that asked St. Nicholas to come and leave them small treats.

This picture is from 1993 and was very special because their Uncle Taras made an appearance as St. Nicholas that year (and they didn't recognize him). He asked the children if they've been good and helped their Mama and Tato, then gave them a small present. They couldn't have been more excited if the real Santa Claus was there! It's one family tradition that we remember fondly and can't wait to share it with their children some day.  Where did the years go, they're all grown up now....
